    Has anyone experienced their boards running hot? I have the stock cpu
    fan (not overclocking for now), but used a higher grade paste. Still
    running high 80s for some apps, I have heard some others had problems,
    but majority seemed to be fine running stock/no OC.

    Is the NB heat pipe sufficient enough for cooling? Haven't seen much
    discussion on it. I have a side case fan blowing right on top of it,
    but wanted to know if it was worth the trouble to rip it off for
    something else considering i have to install several fans to rep
    everything else the heat pipe is connected too... I may OC later on.
    Trying to stay away from liquid this time around.
